Graduates for Article

On Saturday, May 7th, family and friends gathered at the Grady Nutt Athletic Center to watch this year’s graduates receive their degree from Alice Lloyd College.

In opening remarks, President Joe Stepp welcomed family and friends to the campus and praised graduates for their outstanding accomplishments. The Class of 2016 was blessed with a moving baccalaureate address from Reverend Lawrence Baldridge of Pippa Passes, Kentucky, who has been pastor of Caney Baptist Church since 1964.  The commencement address was delivered by ALC alumnus George Nichols, III of Potomac, MD. George received a M.A. degree from the University of Louisville, a B.A. degree from Western Kentucky University and an A.A. degree from Alice Lloyd College. Today, George is the Senior Vice President of New York Life Insurance Company, in charge of the Office of Governmental Affairs.

Following the confirmation of degrees two graduates were recognized for their academic achievements. Dr. Claude “Lafie” Crum, Academic Dean, presented the salutatorian award to Katie McFarland. The prestigious valedictorian award was given to Maegyn Bates.

In addition to recognizing our graduates, President Stepp also presented two special awards to faculty and staff members. Dr. Rhonda L. Smith-Daugherty, Associate Professor of History and Departmental Chairperson, was given the Teaching Excellence and Campus Leadership Award, and Dana Dotson, ALC Registrar, received the Leadership in Service Award.
